English term or phrase: fill their suits
Sin No. 5: Greed
Obstacle: Lamborghini taste, Hyundai salary
Motivation: Bigger bucks
Work harder, get richer. So suggests a Ball State study of 366 entrepreneurs, which compared runners and weight-lifters to their more sedentary brethren. According to the study, men who exercised one to three days per week enjoyed greater productivity, success, and satisfaction in their work than guys who worked out less often.
>Suit up. The same Ball State research found that runners generally have much greater success in business than either non-exercisers or weightlifters -- possibly because of the svelte way they fill their suits.
"I call it the Clark Kent effect," says Michael Goldsby, Ph.D., who led the study. "You can be Superman underneath your shirt, but if you've got a bulky frame, it may make you appear less fit than you truly are." One fix: Toss the off-the-rack jacket-and-pants combo and invest in what's called a made-to-measure suit instead. (Imagine a custom-made fit but with a much cheaper price tag. You can find made-to-measure suits in most major department stores.) The idea is to get a suit that fits you correctly around the shoulders without looking boxy or bulky (read "fat") in the middle.
